Ok so I saw this on a newspaper website. I was just wondering what everyone's thoughts were on this story. I do not understand why they are having an investigation. I mean usually when you are attending a University you are over 18 years old. So if anyone can explain why they would have a investigation please comment.

My guess would be that unless they had certain permits in place AND had carded everyone to be sure they're of age (which for live nudity/sex shows is usually 21 not 18), it's still a lewd act in a public place - which is against the law. And without legal waivers and such, this taking place at a school where people pay to attend could easily be fodder for countless sexual harassment suits and the like - lawsuits have been won over far more frivolous things.

I'm going to to out on a limb and say it's because when you break it all down to the bare bones of the issue - people are sadly still afraid of sex and rather than looking at it as research, it's a 'lude act'.

No matter the number of fantastic sex shops that pop up, people who work within the community to change the current mind set and media we're exposed to, the vast majority still think it's "dirty", "wrong", "sinful" and "inappropriate". Fortunately things are changing, but very slowly.

I live in Chicago, and this was a lead story on the news this morning.

It wasn't just a "sex toy" it was a freaking literal power tool, (like a huge saw handle) with a blurred out dildo on the end of it. The guy turned it on and it sawed back and forth like a fuck machine, but more violently and faster.

Now, I play with sex toys, a lot, but I've never attached one to one of My Man's power tools. I think the whole thing, which was not mandatory for the students, was actually geared to be anti-sex toy. The thing looked SO violent, and crude. Hey, in a Kink.com video, I would think it was cool. But, to present to college students, many of whom may know nothing about real use sex toys, and say, "This is what a sex toy does." it was not only over the top, but disingenuous.

Here's a link. It was a "reciprocating saw with a sex toy attached to it." Along with a "Bondage Demonstration." Um, not a nice medium sized vibrator, or a Hitachi, a freakin' POWER SAW with a dildo on it.

It pisses me off that "sex toys" were presented in this way. It was unrealistic, not what most sex toy users do with their toys, and done for the shock value.

That is absolutly crazy!
I mean I only heard about the article in the local paper. They said nothing about all that.
You are absolutly correct though, it is a very unrealistic thing. I have never met anyone who attaches a sex toy to a power tool.
